Do we actually have a sh in /bin??? Have you tried running a memory checking program, or a hard disk surface scan?If you're in a graphical desktop, you won't be able to see the details of any system crashes.

Just starting out and have a question? http://urldt.com/init-cannot/init-cannot-execute-etc-init-d-rcs.html There was a file in there which was called sh, but it was not a link to a real shell and it was not an executable file. arcane linux knowledge collected over the eons, bit by bit ...
